Audible Drawing #1


It took a certain time to prepare it, but here it finally is: Audible Drawing number one.

This is the first one in an unlimited series of 'audible drawings'.
It is pencil on paper, measures 12 x 12 cm, and comes in a CD jewel case - accompanied by a CD.

The CD is a recording of the drawing: The sound of the pencil on the paper, recorded during the entire creation process of this very drawing. Besides the pencil scratching, some environmental noise can be heard as well, such as birds or cars passing by: You can hear exactly the same things as I have heard while I was drawing. Assist in the birth of a drawing, re-experience the atmosphere of the landscape - become an ear witness of fourty-eight minutes of my life...

The audio is recorded to a printable CDR in a 'limited edition of one'.

I'll sell it on ebay soon, except if anyone wants to buy it before I have the time to do so - special price for this first one: 50 Euros, postage included to anywhere in the world, Paypal accepted.

I don't know about the "audible" part (although it is an interesting idea), but I like your drawings!

Dear Suzanne,
Cher akiba-kei,
Chère Elaine,
Dear Thomas,

Thanks a lot for your encouraging words. Although I don't post very often these days, I'll certainly keep up this project - I'm glad to have found a way to make audio art and drawings at once.

A Happy New Year to everyone!

Werner
